Subject: Wonderful!
The usual love story with happy ending, a lot of humour and astonishing technical details. Who would expect an aeroplane which has cabins like a ship and a platform to go out during a flight? Amazing! A special bonus are the characters of the bad guys. Don't miss this fun.

Subject: Crackerjact mystery/thriller
This is a snappy mystery/thriller of the "wrong man convicted" species, with a first-class cast. I didn't previously know the villain's name (Francis L. Sullivan), but I've seen him as the heavy in some other British movies, and he's great. He's sort of a Sydney Greenstreet type, a very evil villain.

The plot has some novel, unexpected twists, and the leading lady is winsome and likeable. All in all, a most enjoyable movie.

Subject: Great Film!!
It takes a little time to get things all set up in this story, but once that's done it's really a great ride, er, uh...flight.
Definitly hard to classify, it's a little noir, a little sci-fi (very little), a little romance, comedy...and on and on.
One of a kind.
Not a fantastic print, but I personally don't mind much.
Five stars for just plain fun.

Subject: An outdoor observation deck at 80,000 feet?
My that would be a tad chilly now wouldn't it especially over the North Atlantic in an evening gown.
But non-the-less it was still a very cool tale and worth every minute. Spine tingling, spills and chills and an annoying young chap who plays the sax and helps crack the case!
I classified it as mystery thriller on freeclassicflix.co.cc in case anyone wants to drop in.

Subject: Excellent Tale
The Sci-Fi classification of this one is due to the strange conceptulization of a transatlantic aircraft - something of a cross between a zeppelin and an airplane. I suspect the original story had the passengers on a zeppelin and it became an airplane in a foolish attempt to modernize the story. Prepare yourself for a somewhat cool, breezy trip to the airplane's open air observation deck!

This mile a minute thriller is well worth watching. It's a charmer. 7/10

Subject: Great movie better than Hitch!
Was astounded at the high quality story and actors, including a very young and pretty Anna Lee (Mrs. Quartermain of General Hospital) and the terrific Francis L. Sullivan, of Great Expectations and A Star is Born (speech coach). The characters are nicely dropped in one at a time.

You're out of your mind if you miss this film.
